Owner description: We're not here to do what has already been done. From the very beginning, we designed Rosso to capture a sense of place and time, to be authentic and not follow what everyone else was doing in the wine industry. We use a European approach to sharing wine country with you. This approach is authentic, fun, classy and high end. We're not chauffeurs or a limo company. We're a host company, our team is composed of quality individuals from Sonoma and Napa that bring you into their world and take you to places where we would take our best friends. Unlike limo and bus tour companies, we set high standards for our team and we don't make them wear silly penguin suits. My goal is to create fun jobs for my community so we only hire gregarious locals who are passionate about food and wine. Spending a day with one of our hosts is like visiting a friend who lives in wine country. We share wine country through a locals' prospective, which offers a unique view of wine country's less commercial side. Our focus is to support smaller production and family owned wineries that don't mass distribute. Growing up here I always heard locals complain about the buses, limos, town cars, and vans. The last thing Sonoma and Napa needs is another company using those vehicles. Our cars are much nicer and classier than the standard tour vehicle. They are not black and do not have our logo or phone number on them. We use this understated style out of respect for the community, and in hopes to some day bring more charm back to Sonoma and Napa.

“Best way to taste Napa Valley!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

If you are going on a trip to Napa or just want a day of wine, Rosso is the way to do it!! The crew members of Rosso are not only knowledgable about wine, but are so friendly and personable. Instead of going to all the mass-produced touristy wineries, my group and I were taken to the small, authentic, and unique wineries that many people don't get to experience when taking other tours around Napa. Each winery hand picked by Rosso is very special in its own way and allowing it's tasters to really feel that passion and hard work put into their production. A wine tasting with Rosso is the ONLY way to see Napa. Vito and his group so friendly, go with Rosso and I know you will have an excellent day! Thanks ROSSO!

“Extraordinary day with Rosso in Napa Valley!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2012

Had a great experience with Rosso, Wine Country Hosts, in Napa Valley in November, 2012. Vittorio, our guide, took us off "main street" with its commercial vineyards, and instead showed us the more unique, authentic, wine-producers in Napa. The day was filled with great food and wines, and I would most certainly recommend Rosso!

“Absolutely the best choice!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2012

Vito and the Rosso team are the best choice if you want a "true" wine tasting experience that is void of the usual touristy traps of the "other" guys. Vito is an excellent host, very knowledgeable and is a pleasure to be around. We didn't really know what to expect and we were very impressed with the wineries! The caves, the view from the mountain tops while sipping on the best wine I have ever had was just amazing! We will definitely call on Vito the next time we are in the area, we wouldn't even consider anyone else!

“Wonderful world, beautiful people”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

Vito and his crew at Rosso are fantastic! Wife and I took some friends from out of town on a Wine Country tour and wanted it to be special. We were blown away with the knowledge and intimacy that Rosso provided. With Rosso you'll see Vineyards and meet people that are truly unique, a service you just don't get with other "tour" outfits.
Thank you Vito and crew for giving us so many great memories, we'll definitely be back!

“Wonderful day in wine country”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2012

Excellent personalized wine tour. Rosso Wine Country is the best wine experience you can have in the Napa / Sonoma area. Rosso planned an intimate day of boutique wine tasting that was unbelievable. Definitely, a must do! We definitely will be doing this again.
